Since the publication of the Annual Catalogue number, 
some slight alterations have been made in the descriptive 
matter of the college course ; hence, practically the entire 
matter is here given, in revised form, and is designed to 
supersede that previously printed. 

The College comprises the following departments : 
I. The Department of Liberal Arts. 
•11. The Preparatory Department. 

III. The Department of Theology. 

IV. The Department of Music. 

V. The Department of Fine Arts. 
\^I. The Department of Expression. 
Yll. The Department of Home Economics. 

The courses in Liberal Arts are largely elective. The 
degree of Bachelor of Arts is conferred upon the comple- 
tion of one of these courses, and that of Bachelor of Di- 
vinity upon completion of the full course in the Department 
of Theology. Appropriate certificates are issued upon com- 
pletion of other courses. 

State Teachers' Certificates, good for four years and 
convertible into life certificates, are issued by the Michigan 
Department of Education to those who receive the degree 
of Bachelor of Arts, provided their electives include the 


.also receive the degree of Bachelor of Pedagog-y from the 

Students in preparation for technical and professional 
courses, and those who for other reasons do not take a 
regular course, are permitted to choose selected subjects 
rpon advice of the professors immediately interested. 



The degree of Bachelor of Arrs is conferred upon the 
completion of one hundred twenty hours of college work, 
exclusive of Physical Culture, an hour being defined as one 
recitation a week throughout one semester. Of these cne 
hundred and twenty hours, eighty are required in accord- 
ance with tlie student's selection of a Major. For these re- 
quiremenrs see Descriptions of the Courses in the Liberal 

The regular assignment is sixteen hours a week, and a 
greater or less number may be selected only with the con- 
sent of the faculty. 

Advanced credits may be allowed upon examination 
or certificates from other approved colleges. 

A graduate of a four years' college course may con- 
duue his study by taking work offered in die set outline of 
otudy, not previously pursued by him. 

This post-graduate work shall comprise an amount 
equal to at least fifteen hours a week for a year. 

At the close of a satisfactory year's work looking to- 
vvard a degree a formal thesis shall be submitted. 

On further, recommendation of the instructors under 
wdiom the work is done a Master's degree shall be con- 
ferred of like character with the Bachelor's degree already 


Tlie subject for the thesis must be submitted to :he 
facuUy for approval on or before December 1st, of the year 
in which the degree is expected. 

Satisfactory evidence of diligent and intelligent work 
upon the thesis must be submitted to the instructor in whose 
department the work falls, at such times and in such man- 
ner as the instructor may direct. 

The thesis shall represent a minimum of two hundred 
hours of work and contain not less than four thousand 
words, at the same time showing good ability to carry on 
independent study and thought. Attentio4i in judging the 
thesis will be paid to the logical development of the thought 
and to the literary s:yle. 

The completed thesis must be submitted for approval 
2iZ early as May 1st, of the year in which the degree is ex- 
pected, and a typewritten copy must be presented to the 


For admissk)n to the freshman year without condi- 
tions, the requirement is an equivalent of 120 hours in ad- 
vance of a standard eighth grade. An hour is defined 
as one recitation of sixty minutes occurring once a week 
throughout a semester." As a rule, five of the ordinary 
recitations of forty-five minutes for a year in a high-school 
are counted as equivalent to eight "hours." 

Of the required 120 hours, the following must be of- 
fered: English (including grammar), 24: hours; Mathe- 
matics Ulgebra, plane and solid geometry), 1(> to 24 hours; 
Phvsics, 8 hours, including not less than 25 laboratory ex- 
periments fairly equivalent to those in the Preparatory De- 
partment of :he College (which see). 


The remaining hours may be selected from the follow- 
ing list of subjects, with the proviso that the selection shall 
include at least sixteen hours in some one of the four lan- 
guages — Latin, Greek, German and French : 
Greek, 16 hours. Physiography, 4 or 8 hours. 

Latin, 16 — 32 hours. Chernistry, 8 hours. 

German, 16 — 32 hours. Botany, 4 hours. 

French, 16 — 32 hours. Zoology, 4 hours. 

English Literature, 8 hours. Physiology, 4 hours. 
History, 8 — 24 hours. "^'Drawing and Art, 2 — 4 hrs. 

* One hour of credit given for three hours in class. 

To a limited ex*tent, other subjects will be accepted-, 
with credits to be determined upon consultation. 

The 120 hours of preparation are designed to insure 
^the successful pursuit of the collegiate courses, and more 
importance is attached to the amount and quality of the 
work than to the time spent in recitation. 

Accrediied high schools are those wdiich have been 
approved by the faculty of the college, and class-ranks 
certified from them ar^ accepted, without examinations, as 
far as they apply on the 120 hours above mentioned. Those 
who offer certified class-ranks from other scho®ls may 
.receive tentative credits which will become permanent after 
one year of satisfactory advanced w^ork, or they may from 
the first receive permanent credits in either of three ways, 
viz.: 1. Upon taking examinations; 2. Upon presentation 
of satisfactory teachers' certificates for the same subjects; 
3. Upon special action of the faculty. 

Applicants deficient in preparation will be classified in 
some sub-freshman year, or in the freshman year with 


conditions, according to the extent of their previous study, 
and may make up their deficiency in the Preparatory De- 
partment of the college. 

New students, before they register, will meet the com- 
mittee on classification for allowance of credits. 

All new students must choose a Major from those of- 
fered in the Description of Courses. They will then con- 
fer with the h@ad of the department in which their Major 
occurs, as to the assignment of studies. After having" 
selected a Major, each student is expected to complete the 
work which it requires. 

Prospective students are requested to apply to the 
secretary of the college for blanks upon which to enter the 
credits they desire to offer, and return the same to the sec- 
retary as early as practica^ble, preferably as soon as their 
local schools close for the year. 

The college year opens on Tuesday, and new students 
who meet the committee on classification on the afternoon 
of the day before (Monday) will avoid delay and confusion 
incident to the general registration. 

Discription of the Courses in the Liberal Arts 

Professor Bachelder 

III. In t'his course the class studies the ''IHad," the 
''Odyssey" and Greek lyric poetry. Lectures are given on 
the nature of poetry, especially of the epic and the lyric. 
The aim of these lectures is to find the elements of real 
value in poetry, and to give a true standard of judgment 
in poetic criticism. Seymour's ''Iliad/' 'Perrin's Odyssey" 
and Tyler's "Greek Lyric Poets" are used. A brief study 
in Greek history is pursued in the spring, term. 

IV. In this course the Greek drama, with its origin 
and development, is studied. Lectures on poetry are con- 
tinued, with special application to Greek dramatic art. 
Dramas of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides form the 
basis of study. Principles of coiiflicts, plots, dramatic unity, 
poetic justice, movement and ascent, emotions of pity and 
fear, with construction and characterization, suggest the 
nature of the study. The historic influence of the Greek 
drama is traced. Prerequisite, Courses I. — III. 

Text-books : Mather's or Harry's "Prometheus 
Bound," Flagg's "Seven against Thebes," Sidgwick's ''Ag- 
amemnon," Earle's "Oedipus Tyrannus," D'Ooge's "Anti- 
gone," Campbell and Abbott's "Oedipus Coloneus," Allen's 
"Medea of Euripides," and Earle's "Alcestis."

the second, Greek philosophy. Tyler's or D'Ooge's ''Demos- 
thenes on the Crown'' is used ; also, Richardson's ''Aes-

The class may elect the Greek drama, instead of the above. 
Prerequisite, Courses I. — III.

Professor Gurney 

The Michigan legislature of 1893 enacted a law author- 
izing the trusrees of certain colleges to give teachers' cer- 

Section 2 of the bill provides : — 

No such certificate shall be given by the trustees of 
any college that requires -less than four years of colle- 
giate work for bachelor's, master's or doctor's degree, 
in addition to the usual preparatory work for admis- 
sion to the college or the University of Michigan; and 
before any such certificate shall be given, such college 
shall require candidates for such certificate to complete 


a course in the science and art of teaching, equivalent 
to ifive and one-half hours, a week for a college year, 
and such course in the science and art of teaching shall 
first be sulbmitted to and approved by the State Board 
of Education. 

General Psychology is required in addition to the fol- 
lowing and is a prerequisite to the Psychology Applied in 
the spring term. 

The work mentioned in the law is provided for by the 
following courses : 

I. School Managcmtnt, Michigan School Law and 
General School Decisions. Seeley's School Management 
and Hammond's School Law are the texts used. An essay 
upon some topic treated in the School Management is re 
quired. Second semester of junior year. 

II. (a) History of Education, — A careful study is

To obtain a recommendation from the faculty as a 
teacher of a particular subject, the applicant must have 
taken all the work ofifered by the college in that subject. 

Professor Reed 

I. This course is designed to familiarize the student 
with the best methods of study and to bring out clearly the 
fundamental principles of the religion of Jesus as illustrated 
by his life and teachings. Free from controverted questiors 
and the technical criticism incident to professional courses 
in theology, k is essentially practical, measurably elementary, 
and sufficiently comprehensive to lay a foundation for 
further study by Bible readers and Christian workers. Sec- 
ond semester. 

Professor Waterman 

II. This course is historical, inductive and construc- 
tive. Its object is to present the Old Testament according 
to its genesis and historical development, to develop the 
historical method of study and its concrete application, and 
finally to present that which is permanent in the Old Tes- 
tament in relation to modern life. First semester.

The choice of this course and of the two courses in 
Hebrew enables a student to complete the full collegiate 
and seminary work in six years. 

Professor Ward 
I. This course consists of an inquiry into the founda- 
tions of belief in Christianity, with especial reference to its 
divine origin as distinct from human origin. 

Bowman's ''Historical Evidences of the New Testament" 
is used, and lectures are given upon the genuineness, authen- 
ticity and divine origin of the gospels.

This department is under the same general superv'sion 
as other departments, and under the particular direction 
of the Principal. The greater part of the instruction is 
given by the regular professors of the college. 'Ccmbina- 
rions of preparatory and collegiate studies may be made 
with approval of the committee on assignment of studies, 
and those who do not contemplate regular courses or who 
desire to iSt themselves for technical or professio'nal courses 
may scicct their studies with a like approval. 

Graduates from a standard eighth [?rade course are 
admitted, without examination, to the first year of the 
preparatory department. 

A teacher's certificate entitles one to credirs for the 
subjects which it certifies, and these credits become per- 
manent after one year of satisfactory work in the more ad- 
vanced classes. 

Students ofifering ;he full number of requirements 
from accredited high schools are admitted to the freshman 
};ear without examinations or further study in the prepar- 
atory departmen:. Accredited high schools are those which 
have been approved by the faculty of the college, and class- 


ranks certified from them are accepted, without examina- 
tions, as far as they apply. 

TJiose who ofifer certified ranks from other schools 
may receive tentative credits which will become permanenc 
after one year of satisfactory advanced study, or may 
receive permanent credits at the start, in either of three 
ways, viz : 1. Upon taking examinations ; 2. Upon pre- 
senting satisfactory teachers' certificates ; 3. Upon special 
action of the faculty. 

Prospective students are requested to send to the sec- 
retary of the college for blanks upon which their credits 
may be entered and certified. These blanks should be re- 
turned in advance when possible — preferably as soon as 
practicable after the local schools close for the year/ 

During the opening week of each term the Principal 
may be found in his room for consultation. New students 
will meet the committee on classification before they reg- 

As far as possible, the schedule order of studies must " 
be pursued. Special srudents may be required to take an 
examination in English grammar and, if found deficient, 
m.ake English a part of their work. 

For a detailed statement of courses of study, see Hills- 
dale College Bulletin, Vol. 1., No. 1. 



This department is maintained to meet the needs of 
persons desiring reHgious instruction as a part of their 
preparation for life, and to train workers for the minis:ry, 
Sunday Schools, Missions, and other Christian activities. 

During the student's course he has in the literary so- 
cieties of the college abundant opportunity for praciice in 
speaking, writing, debating and parliamentary usages. 
Through the student prayer-meeting and Christian Associa- 
tions one is brought into contact wi:h the whole body of 
active Christian workers in the college, and through the 
local churches feels the current of the city's life. Oc- 
casional and stated supplies of neighboring churches further 
add to rhat personal contact with actual conditions of life 
which is indispensable to fitness for religious work and 
Christian citizenship. 

Candidates for admission to this department must fur- 
nish evidence of good standing in some Ohristian church. 

For unconditional admission to the full course, one 
hundred fifty hours of study are required, selected from 
the preparatory and collegiate courses of the college, ex- 
clusive of those offered in the full theological course, and 
including psychology, ethics, evidences of Christianity, and 
twenty-eight hours of Greek. 

32 hillsdalp: college 

For admission to the English theological course, one 
hundred twenty hours of study are required, selected from 
the preparatory course of the* college. A certificate is 
granted to those who complete the course. 

Those who are unable to take a complete course may 
elect special studies, under the direction of the faculty. 

The collegiate courses afiford such electives that a grad- 
uate of the college may complete the theological course in 
two years and obrain the degree of Bachelor of Divinity. 

Students in the theological departrnent pay to the treas- 
urer, at the beginning of each term, the same fees as other 
students ; excep: that those whose treasurer's coupon of en- 
trance is endorsed by a member of the theological faculty 
are not required to have scholarships. Upon recommenda- 
tion of the theological faculty, on blanks provided for that 
purpose, the college will refund ten dollars at the end of each 
fiscal year to all students of the theological department who 
shall have been in attendance during all the three terms of 
said year. (For statement of fees and other expenses, see 
''General Information'' in following pages of this bulletin.)

Professor Waterman I 
Professor Reed II 

I. Old Testament. — This -course takes up the Old 
Testament historically, traces the political and the moral de- 
velopment of Israel, and treats of their customs and their 
institutions. The religious classes of Israel and their promi- 
nent religious and political leaders as priests, prophets and 
kings are subjects for discussion and investigation. The 
relation of Israel to surrounding nations is studied, and the 
several books of the Old Testament are assigned their places 
in the history of this people. The interpretation of these 
books, their authors, authenticity and genuineness are care- 
fully treated. Attention is given to the various kinds of 
literature found in the Old Testament. Five hours a week 
for a year. 

II. iV^zc/ Testament. — This course aims to make the 
mind of the student familiar v^ith the origin and develop- 
ment of the English Bible, from the days of Caedmon and 
Baeda to the American Revised Version. It includes the 
consideration of the text so far as is practicable and profit- 
able for those who are not students of the original. In the 
stud}^ of the separate books each one is considered with re- 
spect to its historic setting, literary character, author, occa- 
sion, aim, and social, ethical and doctrinal teaching. Es- 
pecial emphasis is placed upon the teachings of Christ, since 
a clear apprehension of His teachings enables one more 
readiiy to understand the teachings of His apostles. Five 
hours a week for a vear. 


Professor Reed 

New Testament grammar; lectures on the origin and 
nature of the New Testament Greek, and kindred topics ;; 
essays by the class on questions of geography, biography, 
etc. ; exegesis of select portions of the New Testament. 
Five hours a week for a year. 

Professor Waterman 

I. Elementary. — ^^This course includes Hebrew gram- 
mar, translation, sight reading and some exegetical work. 
Five hours a week for a year. 

I. Old Testament Exegesis. — Sight reading is con- 
tinued. Exegetical methods are inculcated. Attention is 
given to syntax. The student is made acquainted with the 
structure and the idioms of the language, and with the 
different kinds of Hebrew literature. Poetry, especially 
the psalms and prophecy, is carefully studied. Five hours 
a week for a year. 


I. It is the purpose of this course to develop and to 
set before the student the truths of the Christian religion in 
a self-consistent system, with ,a statement of the reasons for 
believing them, and a disclosure of false positions. AVith the 
ordinary facts of human knowledge for a basis, a careful 
study is made of man himself and of the world in which 
he lives. Psychology is developed by an analysis of man's 
intuitions, sensibilities, conscience and the powers of the 
will. Ethics is continued by a consideration of the pur- 
poses of life and of the nature, source and extent of evil 


action. Then follows a study of the world, its structure, 
laws and phenomena ; of man, his origin, instincts and des- 
tiny ; of the system of influences, physical and moral, es- 
tablished in the universe ; of the Bible, its history influence 
and fundamental ideas. Thus a foundation is laid for a 
belief in a Creator having all perfections, and for intel- 
ligently receiving the Bible as a revelation from Him. The 
Bible and reason are then consulted for information on par- 
ticular doctrines : God's immanence, purposes and provi- 
dences ; Christ's person and work in saving men; the Holy 
Spirit and His work in the hearts of men ; repentance, its 
fruits and their continuance ; the future life and the ex- 
periences of the rig^hteous and the wicked after death. In 
this study it is sought to take only such positions as the 
induction warrants and thus to have a sure foundation on 
which to build. Five hours a week for four terms. 

Professor Re«d 

I. This course aims to acquaint the student wiJi the 
various branches of the church, its doctrines. Christian life, 
worship, organization, and missionary activity. 

In each of the minor subdivisions of the history of 
the church especial emphasis is placed upon that which 
is characieristic of the period. In the apostolic age es- 
pecial emphasis is placed upon the lives and teachings of 
the apostles ; in the post-apostolic age, upon the history of 
persecution, development of the hierarchy and the influence 
of Greek thought upon the doctrines of the church; in the 
post-Nicene period, upon the further developnient of the 
liierarchy, the rise and development of monasticism, and 


the influence upon Christian Hfe of the union of church and 
state under Constantine ; in the next period upon the heroic 
and wise efforts of the church in gathering into its fold the 
barbarians who overran western Europe, the rise of Mo- 
hammedanism, the union of the papacy with Pepin, king of 
the Franks, and the transference, by the coronation of 
Charlemagne, of papal allegiance from the East to the West, 
etc. The seminary method of instruction is employed, so 
far as the sources at hand permit. Five hours a week for 

a vear. 


Professor Ward 

I. Instruction is given in the construction of sermons, 
in the collection and arrangement of the materials of which 
they are composed, and in the spirit and the purposes which 
should guide in their preparation and delivery. Plans of 
sermons, and sermons on different models are presented by 
members of the class for criticism. Attention is also given 
to delivery and to the general conduct of pulpit work. Four 
hours a week for two terms. 

Professor Ward 

I. Lectures are given on pastoral duties, public and 
private,, on the best methods of conducting the work of a 
pastor, on organizing a church for efficient work, and on 
all matters in which the young pastor may be aided by the 
experience of others. One hour a week for two terms. 
Professor Ward 
I. This course is devoted to a consideration of the 
missionary activities of the past century. The development 


of the work undertaken by the various missionary organiza- 
tions is dwelt upon in detail, with a view to a complete un- 
derstanding of the wonderful growth of the movement and 
of the present condition of the work in the various fields. 
Attention is also given to the outlook for the future, in 
view of the ''Student Volunteer Movement," and of the 
present spiritual condition of the church. Five hours a 
week for the spring term. 

Professor Ward 
This subject is taken up historically, a brief account 
being given of the origin, development and teachings of all 
the prominent religions. Especial aitention is given to those 
systems which are now living religions — Mohammedanism, 
Confucianism, Brahmanism and Buddhiism. The relation of 
these to each other and to Christianity is discussed, with a 
statement of the excellencies and defects of each. Two 
hours a week for the winter term. 


Professor Ward 

At the opening of this course the grounds for the ob- 
servance of the Christian Sabbath are considered, and a 
study is made of the church of New Testament times, its 
ordinances, organization, officers, etc. The design is to 
state in a clear light the New Testament basis for the posi- 
tive institutions of the church. The various forms of church 
government at the present day, — ^Catholic, Episcopalian, 
Presbyterian and Congregational, — ^are also discussed, and 
the distinctive features and relative advantages of each are 
pointed out. Then follows a consideration of the circum- 


.-stances atrending the rise of the Free Baptist deiiomirLation ; 
its history is briefly outUned with particular reference to the 
development of its polity, and the polity as it exists to-day 
is then considered, with frequent consultation and study of 
the Treatise. Five hours a week for spring term. 



Director of Department. 

Professor of Pianoforte, Harmony., Theory. 


Professor of Voice Culture and Chorus Director. 


The courses of study here prescribed are for earnest 
students, to enable them to attain real excellence. As very 
many have in mind the work of teaching, their needs have 
been specially provided for. Technique is taught as a means 
to an end. The ability to play or sing music at sight in- 
telligently is considered of great importance. 

The Etudes named indicate the range of difficulty be- 
longing to the several grades, but it is obvious that a list of 
pieces sufficient to cover all the possible needs of the in- 
dividual student cannot here be given. 

The time needed for the completion of each grade 
averages one year, but pupils showing the necessary ability 
are advanced to higher grades as quickly as is found ad-^ 


visable, so that the time for graduation may be lessened. 
Obviously more time is needed if college studies are pursued 
at the same time. 

A musical education should comprise as much literary 
work as insures a high degree of scholarship, accordmgly 
a college course is recommended to all who can attain it. 
Herein lies the advantage of studying music in a schoiol 
where art, literature and science are blended. 

Numerous public recitals are given and all students 
are expected to take part when qualified. These furnish 
incentives to study and give experience in public perform- 

All singers who are found competent by the director 
may join the large chorus choir which supplies the music 
for the college church. There is also a select chorus which 
m.eets once a week throughout each term for the study of 
oratorios and of other high class music. This chorus aims 
to give one public concert during each term. 

Diplomas are granted to all who complete the course 
for piano or voice culture in a satisfactory manner, ' 

The organ built by the Hook-Hastings Company and 
exhibited by them at the fair in St. Louis, during the season 
of 190-i, having been purchased by the Free Baptist Society 
of Hillsdale, has been placed in the college church and will 
be available for the purpose of organ study by students in 
the Music Department. This work can be prosecuted con- 
tinuously during the summer.

M-elody Writing ;" twice a week, one year. 

B)altzeirs ''History of Music/' one hour per week, one 
3^ear (free). 

The study of Singing during this course is strongly 



Management and control of the breath, as applied to 
singing. Tone production, with especial attention to purity 
of vowel formation. Establishment and blending of the 
vocal registers. Exercises in diatonic intervals. Simple 
scale passages and arpeggios leading to voice building and 
general foundation of a vocal technique. Solfeggi and easy 
5ongs for application of exercises. The study of articulation 
and elements of phrasing and style

scales and arpeggios ; study in the different kinds of vocal- 
ization ; legato, marcato, portamento and staccato ; medium 
grade solfeggi. Progressive vocal studies with Italian 
words. Medium grade songs.

ian, French and German. Oratorio. 

Books : Righini's and Marchesi's ''Vocal Studies" 
Lamperti's "Studies on Bravura Singing," etc. 

The graduation course requires, in addition to the 
above vocal studies, work in Harmony, Counterpoint and 
Form, and History of Music, extending over two years. 

Not less than three years' work is required for grad- 
uarion in voice, though students who have studied elsewhere 
are classed in the grade for which, in the opinion of the 
director, they are fitted, thereby getting due credit for their 
work and s'hortening the period for graduation. Pupils 
may also save time by taking more than one lesson each 
* week. 

It is strongly recommended that vocal students take 
piano as a second study throughout the whole vocal course. 
If this is inconvenient, at least one year's study should be 
taken. It is also very advantageous for the student to study 
French, German or Italian. 

Those who are to graduate are informed that vheir 
fitness to do so will be judged under the following heads: 

Excellence of scales ; arpeggios and intervals ; vocal- 
ization and flexibility ; production ; management and control 
of breath ; precision and neatness in attacking and quie- 
ting sound ; blending the different registers ; rhythm, time 
and accent ; individuality and purity of style ; distinctness 
and correctness of pronunciation ; phrasing, expression and 
purity of tone ; declamation ; posture and facial expression ; 
reading at sight and general musicianship.

Students are required to consult the director before 
they arange to take part in any public musical exercise. 

As the music departmenr supplies the music for public 
college occasions, there are many opportunities for students 
who are deemed sufficiently advanced, to gain valuable ex- 
perience in appearing before large audiences. 

For further particulars address Prof. M. W. Chase, 
Director, Hillsdale, Mich. 


Upon the registration of ten pupils, private lessons on 
the Violin, one each week, will be given by Mr. Arthur E. 
Bryce, teacher of violin and orchestra at Battle Creek. He 
now has a large patronage in that city, and pupils go to 
him from Hillsdale and other points. He has arranged 
with Professor Chase for a room for instruction, condition- 
ally upon his coming, and while in Hillsdale he won the 
endorsement of musicians who met him and heard his play- 
ing. After an early training under John B. Martin, the 
well-known violinist and orchestra leader of Battle Creek, 
he took an extended course as a direct private pupil of 
Henry Schredieck, the celebrated composer, teacher and 
performer of New York, formerly head of the violin de- 
partment of the Cincinnati Conservatory. 

Mr. Bryce would spend a part of each week at the col- 
lege pending the growth of a patronage to warrant his re- 
moval to Hillsdale. The tuition in the beginning would be 
$1.50 per private lesson of one hour, payable in advance 


for periods to be agreed upon with the several pupils. 
This rate includes his estimated traveling expenses, appor- 
tioned equally among the patrons, and would be subject to 
deduction as the number of pupils may increase, $1.00 being 
the minimum in any event. 

Those who are interested for themselves and others 
will please make known itheir purposes to the Secretary of 
the College as soon as practicable, with a view to consumma- 
tion of plans for his beginning at or near the opening of the 
college year, on September 11. Instruction will not be of- 
fered unless ten pupils definitely state their intemion to 
register for a term of ten lessons. 


Mrs. Margaret Maynard, Instructor. 


In this department, Art is viewed as a language, in the 
study of which the training of eye and hand is a means to 
the higher end of the expression of thought and feehng. 
The cultivation of the creative powers and the desire and 
capacity to give tangible expression to those powers are the 
paramount aims. Individuality is a prime requisite, and 
originality in composition is the essence of art. The pre- 
scribed course is subject to' such practical modifications as 
special students may require. It is intended that upon leav- 
ing the department one shall have a just comprehension of 
art in its varying phases and uses, an appreciation of the 
best in nature, an observation -trained to see and record, 
and power to convey one's impressions in the simplest pos- 
sible way. A special course is given to such as contemplate 
the teaching of drawing in public schools. Those who 
aspire only to sufficient skill with pencil and brush to en- 
gage in home pastimes and decoration take briefer courses 
under influences which give to them a richer conception of 
art. Drawing and composition constitute the chief ele- 
ments of illustration and cartoons, and so lead to the useful 


The college grants diplomas to those who complete 
the course outlined below, and tha: course may be finished 
in three years by a pupil of exceptional talent. 

Instruction in this department is applied upon the 
courses in the collegiate and preparatory departmenrs to the 
hmit and under the conditions set forth in the statements 
of those courses on previous pages of this bulletin. 

A department scholarship covering full tuition for the 
year 1906-7 was awarded in June, 1906, upon competition 
in original composition, limited to students who had had 
art instruction one year or less. 

The scholarship given by Mrs. Alexander Stock, to 
the student nominated by the instructor in art, will be con- 
tinued for 1906-7, and others will be solicited during the 


The courses include drawing, in elementary and aca- 
demic grades, modeling, composition and perspective, 
divided into five classes. The following courses are subject 
to such practicable modifications as individual patrons may 
require : 


Chiefly early charcoal practice in outline, and general 
light and shade, from blocks and simple casts. 

Same as .class I, more advanced ; important outlines 
and shadows carried farther; perspective; still life in mon- 
ochrome and color. 


Heads and figures from cast in full ligh: and shade; 
still-life modeling; composition in black and white. 



Portrait and costume ; modeling ; composition in color. 

Classes are provided for study from life as well as 
from the antique. 

The daily life-sketch class and out-door sketch classes 
are free to all students of the department. 

Classes in composition and perspective meet twice a 

Students have the opportunity of working from life as 
early as possible, which stimulates interest and avoids the 
sense of drudgery. 

Criticisms are given in the studio each morning and 
afternoon, five days in the week. 

Students may work from 9 :00, a. m., until 4 :00, p. m., 
from Tuesday to Saturday, inclusive. 

The Ibest drawings are posted at the end of each month 
and recorded with honorable mention of the authors.

ing in public schools. 

A Saturday class in Drawing, Painting and Modeling, 
from 9 :00 to 12 :00 a. m., accommodates school children, 
and a class from 1 :00 to 4 :00, p. m., is conducted for public 
school teachers and others who cannot take the work on 
other days. 

Exhibitions of work done in the department are given 
from time to time.

Department of Oratory and Expression 

M. Myrtilla Davis, M. S., Instructor 

The College grants certificates to all who satisfactorily 
complete the course. The range of work is such that this 
department takes equal rank with the best schools of ex-

Results of This Year's Training 

The individuality of every student is constantly accen- 
tuated, 'SO that each has a role in which he alone excels. 
This year's work also gives skill in the preparation and the 
rendering of professional programs, including all styles of 
literature from current stories to Shakespearean tragedies. 
It also gives the ability intelligently to illustrate these pro- 
grams for pupils and to write critical reviews of the per- 
formances of our great orators and actors. 

The following studies are also required : English gram- 


mar, rhetoric, physiology and two years of English litera- 

Private rhetoricals in which all the students take part, 
and frequent public recitals by advanced students are given. 

The courses are arranged so systematically that an apt 
pupil can, at the end of the first year, teach as far as he has 
^mastered the technique. 

The director of this department, while not promising 
positions, has always been successful in securing desirable 
appointments for her graduates. There is a growing de- 
mand for thoroughly trained teachers of oratory and elocu- 
tion. Good readers and entertainers are never without en-

Hillsdale city, -the seat of Hillsdale College, has proved 
to be an almost ideal location for an educational institution. 
Situated gracefully on either side of the beautiful St. Joseph 
river, a short distance from the Baw Beese chain of lakes, 
the river's source, it enjoys a splendid climate, owing to its 
altitude, and affords -excellent facilities for a thorough sys- 
tem of drainage. 

It i'S a railway center of considerable importance, on the 
main line of the famous Lake Shore road, almost exactly 
half way between Cleveland and Chicago. By radiating 
lines direct access is made to Detroit, Jackson, Lansing and 
Fort Wayne. 


The college grounds comprise twenty-five acres, on 
College Hill, an elevation which commands a comprehensive 
Tiew of the city of Hillsdale and a variety of hills and dales. 
From the buildings are seen neighboring villages, and a 
•chain of beautiful small lakes which are close to the city 
limits and whose outlet is the St. Joseph River. This river 
is a small stream at this place, running through the city and 
skirting the base of the hill. 


The campus is unexcelled for beauty by any similar 
grounds in Michigan. It is well shaded by trees of natural 
growth and by groves planted by professors and students 
during fifty years. The fountain and the soldiers' monu- 
ment at the main entrance to the campus, the shrubbery, 
beds of flowers, class stones, cement walks and other adorn- 
ments further beautify the grounds. 

College Hall, the central of the six buildings, is of 
brick, having three stories and a basement, and is sur- 
mounted by a tower. It contains the offices of the president 
and the secretary, the chapel, library, hall of the Christian 
Associations, recitation rooms and toilets, is heated wifh' 
steam and supplied with gas and electricity. 

East Hall, a brick building of four stories and base- 
ment, contains the college parlors, reception and dining 
halls, apartments of the Dean of Women and lady students, 
bath rooms, steam heat, laundry and appurtenant conveni- 
ences. The biological laboratory occupies a portion of this 

Fine Arts Hall, a three-story and basement brick build- 
ing, is the home of the Departments of Music and Art and 
the ladies' literary societies, contains the physical laboratory, 
and is in part used for general instructional purposes. 

Knozvlton Hall, a brick building of three stories and 
a basement, was named in memory of Bbenezer Knowlton, 
a clergyman and a congressman of note. It contains the 
museum, chemical laboratory, alumni hall, quarters for elo- 
cution, and halls of the literary societies for gentlemen. 

Worthing Divinity Hall is also of brick, three stories 
and a basement. It is the home of the Department of 


Theology, containing recitation and dormitory rooms. 

The Dickerso'n Gymnasium, is a frame building, sup- 
plied with necessary apparatus for physical training, with 
separate haths, dressing rooms and lockers for ladies and 
gentlemen. More than two thousand dollars have been ex- 
pended' the pa'st year in improving the gymnasium facilities. 
'The 'athletic track, ball grounds, tennis couris, specta- 
tors' stands and flag staff are in close proximity to the gym- 

■ ■• 'Sincfe June, 1903, improvements have been made on the 
college -buildings and equipment to the value of $15,000. 
Nearly 'the ehtire sum has been contributed by fri'ends for 
thie particular purposes. 


'^^'^ ''Ti'mes chaiige ; and it • is said that men and things 
cli'Mg^e with therii. This may be true, as a general principle, 
buY'tliere are exceptions. Take, for instance, the matter of 
Gblleg'e fees. In the first Hillsdale College annual catalog, 
published in' 1856, announcement is made of tuition, $20.00 
per year, and incidentals, $.75 to $1.00, per term. Thus, the 
annual fees would vary from $22.25. to $23.00. The present 
charges are $22.00, annual fees, and 50c per term, for 
tuition, amounting in total :o $23.50 for the entire year. 

This admits the rule, in the fact that the designated 
items have interchanged places, and allows a practical ex- 
ception in the matter of the amount entire. Really, how- 
ever, in view of the fact that the present sum represents so 
much more privilege and opportunity, it is relatively of, 
greater value, and therefore cheaper, the trifling .averas:e 
difference of $.625, apparent excess, being ignored in the 


In the past fifty years there has heen a direct increase 
in the average cost of living, in two respects : the price of 
commodities and the exactions of present day standards. 
Yet, m spite of the foregoing, the college authorities have 
always endeavored to keep expenses for the student within 
as moderate limits as possible. 

Quality considered, Hillsdale has never before offered 
so much educational value for the money as at the present 
time. We invite comparison with the rates of other schools. 

We herewith append the data, that the figures may 
speak for themselves. 


Special charges for Music, Elocution, Art and Hom^ 
Economics are mentioned on other pages devoted respec- 
tively to those departments. 

For the Collegiate, Theological and Preparatory De- 
partments the fees are as follows : 

Matriculation, paid but once, upon first entering $3 00 

Tuition, per term 50 

Tuition to one w'ho ihas a scholarship Free 

Term fees, the fall term 8 00 

Term fees, the winter and the spring term, each 7 00 

Diploma fee, payable once, at the beginning of the last term 

of the senior year 5 00 

The fees are payable in advance at the opening of each 

Laboratory fees, for those only who take the following 

Preparatory Physics $1.50 for the semester 

College Physics 2.00 for the semester 

Preparatory Botany 1.00 for the semester 


Chemistry 5.00 for the semester 

Biology I 2.00 for the semester 

For work in the laboratories not included in the courses 
set out in the catalogue, fees are demanded according to 
the supplies used. 

The above charges cover privileges of library, reading- 
room, gymnasium, track, courts, and admission to athletic 

Tuitions for Music and Elocution are payable 'to the 
heads of the departments ; those for Art and Home Econom- 
ics to the treasurer of the college. 


The cost of living at college varies as much as at 
home, and it is impossible to state with accuracy, what one 
must or wi41 spend during a term or year. This is deter- 
mined by the scale of living to which one has been accus- 
tomed in his home, and by his own thrift and economy. 
One will spend nearly or quite double the sum expended by 
another, without any apparent difiference in their satisfac- 
tion with what they have. One will in amusements, recrea- 
tion and dress spend as much as another may be able or will- 
ing to spend for all purposes. 

From the previous statement of necessary college bills 
and the range of charges for room and board, each can ap- 
proximate his total expenses more nearly than another can 
estimate for him. Text-books cost from $3 to $15 for the 
year, according to the subjects pursued. Traveling expen- 
ses widely vary. Some hire their laundry work done; 
others are so situated that theirs is done at home or by 
themselves. Some rent rooms, furnish them, and provide 


their own fuel, lights, and perhaps food ; others take rooms 
partially or wholly furnished, with or without care, fuel and 
lights. Among the optional expenditures are those of lirer- 
ary, Christian, musical and other organization's, lecture 
courses and the like, each small, but the aggregate is con- 
siderable if one engages in all. 

From the nature of the case, any attempt at a precise 
statement of total expenses in any college rnust be mislead- 
ing, if not disappointing. 

It is a safe general statement that living expenses in 
Hillsdale are exceptionally low for a place of its size, that 
a spirit of strict economy characterizes the living in the 
college and its immediate environment, and that the total 
expenses are lower than in most institutions offering equally 
good advantages. If, by boarding himself and adhering to 
other strict expedients, one spends but $100 to $125 in a 
year, as some have done, his social standing is equal to that 
of the one who has the means and disposition to spen$! 
double the amount. 

Officers of the college and of the Christian associations 
cheerfully advise students about living advantages, choice 
of rooms and the like, when they arrive. 


The college employs a few students for janitorial and 
mis'cellaneous service ; others assist in hotels and clubs ; 
others pay for their board wholly or in part by assisting in 
private families ; others sleep in and take care of banks and 
stores ; still others canvass with merchandise, ibooks and pic- 
tures, during their vacations and weekly holidays. In re- 
cent years, citizens have offered more manual employment 


than the students could accept within the Umits of their 
available hours. Those who seek employment rarely fail to 
find it in some form, after remaining a short time, and often 
engage in it from the start. With rare exceptions one must 
be on the ground before his room is selected or employment 
be obtained. One student excels another in the aptitude for 
seeing opportunities. Occasionally one makes enough 
money incidentally to his college duties to pay his entire 
current expenses. 

One who labors for his support does not suffer socially 
by comparison with others. It 'has been justly said of the 
college by one of its graduates: "Self-reliance and honest 
toil have uniformly been encouraged, and few instiUitions 
have so efifectually excluded aristocratic tendencies. Hills- 
dale college has, in a peculiar sense, been the home of self- 
supporting youth, and its 'aristocracy' has for half a cen- 
tury been composed largely of young men and women of 
high character and studious lives, who have given all hours 
that could be spared from college duties to the means of 
support which they could find in and about Hillsdale.'' 

The lofificers of the college and of the Christian associ- 
ations freely give advice in the search for employment. 


"All time and money spent in training the body pays a 
larger interest than any other investment.'' — Gladstone^ 

Physical culture is given to both ladies and gentlemen 
in the gymnasium, which has the requisite equipment for 
the exercises that aim primarily at good health and effective 
command of one's physical powers, together with conveni- 
ences of baths and toilets. 



For the gentlemen the work takes three hours a week 
throughout one year, and may -be extended another year, 
in the discretion of the faculty. The student may elect ad- 
ditional training. In addition to the class work, teams are 
formed for practice in games. 

General class work for young ladies is given two days 
a week, excepting for those in the last two collegiate years. 
Jumping, running, marching and games vary and enliven 
the lessons. Ladies' basket ball teams are organized, and 
the game is played according to Spalding's Rules for 

The effi'ciency ' in these various lines is materially 
strengthened and improved by the use of a mercurial dyna- 
mometer. By this instrument forty-eight groups of the 
most impprtant muscles of the body can be tested, and their 
actual strength in pounds can be given. 

The Simpson gold medals are awarded as prizes for 
excellence in physical culture and athletic competition. 

Hillsdale College stands for Christian education and 
character in their truest and broadest aspects. No particu- 
lar denominational beliefs are prescribed or pressed upon 
student or professor, but the essentials of Biblical truth 
are regarded as vital in any education which aims at the 
development of good character. Liberty of individual belief 
on subjects concerning which there is a diversity of doctrine 
or interpretation is freely accorded to all. The catholicity 
of the religious policy and practice of the institution is illus- 
trated by a wide diversity of church communions repre- 
sented in the faculty and student-body. 


Each student is expected to attend t'he regular dailv 
chapel exercises and one public religious service on the SaJh- 
bath at some church selected by his parents cr himself. 

The Young Men's Christian Association and the Young 
Women's Christian Association, affiliated with the s'ate and 
national organizations, hold joint and separate weekly meet- 
ings, and conduct their own courses in the study of the 
Bible, missions and the like, supplementary to the instruc- 
tion of the regular courses; they also care for the sick, con- 
duct evangelistic services, foster the spiritual and social, 
welfare of the studen:s, and welcome and befriend strangers. 

The "Volunteer Movement" is effective, and candidates 
for foreign missions are always in attendance. The college 
has an unusually large number of students in foreign fields 
under the boards of the several denominations. 

To be placed in any given class, a student's deficiencies 
must not exceed five hours' work. New students shorild, as 
early as possible, forward to the secretary of the college 
standings for which they wdsh credit. 


Sixteen hours a week constitute the required work for 
each student. As each lesson is designed to require at least 
two hours of preparation, the sixteen hours should properly 
represent a minimum total of forty-eight hours of applica- 
tion a week. 

No recitations are held on Monday, the weekly holiday. 


The Library, numbering about fourteen thousand vol- 
umes, exclusive of pamphlets and unbound books, is open 


daily, except Sunday. In this is a well sustained reading- 
room, with a comprehensive selection of the best current 


East Hall, the portion of the original building which 
survived the fire of 1874, has been so remodeled for a 
Ladies' Hall as to include steam heat, two individual par- 
lors connecting with a large reception room, vestibule and 
modern stairs, a beautiful dining room, hardwood floors and 
attractive wall decorations in the public apartments, and 
other improvements. Private rooms have been refitted and 
decorated, singly and en suite. The rooms are provided 
with heavy furniture and lavatory sets, and carry with them 
sleam heat, the use of bath and other general privileges 
of the building. For the rooms, the charge ranges from 
70 cents to $1.10 a week for each occupant, including heat. 
During the current summer all rooms in the Ladies' Dormi- 
tory have been fitted wdth gas lamps, and students will be 
charged the acaial cost of the gas consumed, averaging 
about fifteen cents per week during the year. 

This Ladies' Hall, designed as well for a social center 
of the college at large, is the home of all non-resident lady 
students whose parents or guardians do not in writing re- 
quest thai their daughters or wards lodge elsewhere. Blanks 
for such request will be furnished upon application to the 
Secretary of the College.. The selection of private lodging 
and boarding places for non-resident ladies should have the 
written approval of the Dean of Women. 

The dining room in East Hall is conducted, for bo'ch 
ladies and gentlemen, on the club plan, by which members 


of the club regulate the cost of board. During 1905-G the 
cost for table board has averaged about $2.25 a week. 

Worthing Divinity Hall has rooms reserved primarily 
for gentlemen who have the gospel ministry in vi^w. These 
rooms are provided with heavy furniture, and some have 
been completely furnished by churches, societies and indi- 
viduals. The Trharges average about 25 cents a week for 
each occupant. To a limited extent rooms not taken up 
by candidates for the ministry are let to others, in the dis- 
cre:ion of the committee in charge. 

In private families rooms are rented for 25 cents to 
$1.50 a week, according to quality, location, furniture, care, 
lights and fuel ; and table board in families may be had at 
moderate cost. 

Those who board themselves live at less cost than is 
indicated above, and for this purpose such persons can find 
room and facilities in houses near the college. 


The Colle:gian, published semi-monthly during the 
school year, is devoted to college and educational news, 
literary productions of the students, notes about former 
students, and miscellaneous matter. It is conducted by a 
corps of editors and managers chosen from the student- 
body. The subscription price is $1.00 per year. 


The gentlemen have three literary societies — the Am- 
phictyon, the Alpha Kappi Phi, and the Theadelphic. The 
ladies have two — the Ladies' Literary Union and the Ger- 
manae Sodales. These societies have separate halls fur- 


nished with rare elegance. Regular meetings are held on 
Monday at 7, p. m. 


The college community unites with the citizens in the 
support of series of lectures, concerts and other high-class 
entertainments. In addition, it has free public lectures se- 
lected with particular reference to the needs and tastes of 
college people. 

During the winters of 1905 and '06 Sunday School In- 
stitutes have been held by W. C. Pearce, Teachers' Training 
Secretary of the International Sunday School Association, 
in 1905 ; and by Marion Lawrence, Secretary of the Interna- 
tional Sunday School Association, in 1906. These courses 
of lectures have proved very stimulating and helpful, and 
other similar courses will be continued from time to time. 


Nearly every year some change is made in the person- 
nel of the teaching force. This is an inevitable condition 
and must be accepted as such. The current year is no ex- 
ception; so while regretting the fact, we are glad to extend 
a cordial greeting to the newcomers. Hence, we take pleas- 
ure in introducing to the College circle the three new mem- 
bers of the Faculty, with a word of appreciation for each, 
and bespeak for thera a sincere welcome and a loyal suppori. 

Miss Grace Grieve Millard, has been officially selected 
as the new Women's Dean and will assume the full duties at 
the opening of the fall term. She is a graduate of the 
University of Michigan, with several years of subsequent 
experience in successful school work. She possesses strong 
personality and marked social attainments, coupled with 
scholarlv abilitv and knowledsre of dormitorv life. 


Wm. J. Boone, popularly known as "Dan," has been 
elected Physical Director, to have charge of athletics and 
gymnasium work. He is a graduate of the college, and for 
two years has been attending the University of Chicago, 
where he has been in training in bo'h foot ball and base ball 
under Coach Stagg, by whcm he was considered one of his 
best all-round men. While in college here, ''Dan" v^on the 
Simpson medal for excellence in athletic sports, and was a 
first-class athlete on the foot hall, base ball, basket ball and 
track teams. He is an upright young man of good habits, 
and his popularity in both college and town circles, with 
his fine ability, wdll insure the lovers of sport for sport's 
sake that athletics will be placed on a high level and suc- 
cessfully conducted. 

Mrs. Margaret Maynard, of Hamilton, N. Y., who has 
accepted the position of instructor in Art, is familiar with 
college life and spirit. Reared in the home of a professor 
in Colgate University and studying art from early life, she 
married an artist, the son of a professor in that university, 
w'ho died a few weeks later. Studying with Frank Town- 
send Hutchins, of New York, she taught art in two acade- 
mies and then studied at length with Colin, Merson and 
MacMonnies in Paris. Since her return to America she has 
served Washington Seminary two years and the state uni- 
versity of South Dakota five years as professor of fine arts. 
In the applied arts and crafts she has taken up the work in 
leather. She approves the courses as laid down in this Bul- 
letin and will begin her service at Hillsdale October 1. Un- 
til that date her presence will be required at exhibits embrac- 
ing fortv of her canvases in the states of New York and 


Pennsylvania. As soon as practicable after those exhibits 
close, she will exhibit her work in Hillsdale. Until Septem- 
ber 1, her address will be Unadilla Forks, N. Y., where she 
is engaged for the sixth sesaon in a summer art school. 
Three annual scholarships, $75.00 each, have already been 
offered by friends of the department. 


Merely as an evidence of the type of work being done
